A roof repair or installation project can be a labor-intensive task. After all, most of the time it will involve tearing off large portions of the roof. Unfortunately, doing so can also damage the exterior of your home, which can add to your costs since you will need to rectify any damage done. Thankfully, it is possible to protect your home’s exterior for the duration of the project.
In this post, the roof replacement professionals of Homecraft Inc. share ways to protect your exterior during a roof installation project.
When it comes to keeping your roof in top shape, you might be surprised if your roofers tell you that the upkeep of your gutters play an important factor in the task. After all, a poorly maintained gutter system can cause water to pool on your roof and inevitably seep beneath the shingles, compromising its structural integrity. With that in mind, it’s understandable that you want your gutters working year-round.
In this post, the experts from Homecraft Inc. shares four tips you can follow to keep your gutters working all year, starting with:
Sometimes, common problems occur in areas where you least expect them. For roofs, this could be moisture damage from poor attic ventilation. For windows, it could be a failure of the caulk and weatherproofing seal. For doors, the door frame could be the culprit. Experts like roofers, technicians and general handymen are equipped to properly identify the problem areas and apply an effective solution.
Many homeowners know that unwanted water and moisture are their roofing system’s number one enemy. Moisture can rot wood, corrode metal and start a whole list of other problems on your shingles. But a lot of people still don’t understand how exactly moisture causes all these issues and where it even comes from. Believe it or not, your home is vulnerable not just to rainwater but also to indoor humidity.
Window replacement contractors, just like roofers and other home improvement builders, have peak and off-peak seasons. Spring and summer are the busiest seasons for the replacement window industry. The warm weather makes for an ideal time to have contractors finish their jobs. Moreover, the caulk and weatherstripping used in these installation projects cure better and faster in the heat. In fact, low temperatures can even cause these materials to fail completely.
Summer is not just a time to go out and enjoy the outdoors or spend lazy days indoors. This time of the year presents a perfect opportunity for you to pursue certain home maintenance tasks. After all, the weather is pleasant, which means you have more time to complete them.
Summer is fast approaching and it can only mean one thing—improving your home is on top of your to-do list. That list may be getting longer as temperatures continue to rise, but a window replacement is something you should consider or even prioritize.
